#formnigani is a youth-led, creative movement in support of family planning advocacy in Kenya. It aims to reinvigorate public conversations and debate among Kenyans on the crucial role that contraception plays on individual, household, community and national level development.

#formnigani held Think Tanks with young social mobilizers in 2019 to conduct scenario-building exercises in Nairobi and Bungoma for the probable futures Kenya could face. The Kenya in 2030 Futures Report was published in November with four possible futures together with a roadmap of key inputs required to achieve the ideal scenario—Uwakilishi.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has threatened contraception efforts in Kenya. The new #formnigani report Young Kenyan Voices: COVID-19 and Contraception explores the possible outcomes of the new reality brought on by COVID-19. It outlines possible pathways to mitigate against low access to sexual and reproductive healthcare (SRH) among Kenyan youth.

The future scenarios young Kenyans believe the country is facing and the critical importance of contraception in shaping the future they want.

Upendeleo

Upendeleo

A PRIVATIZATION SCENARIO

The Upendeleo (favoritism) scenario is characterized by a healthcare system that is resilient and more efficient in 2030 than in 2019, but contraception outcomes are very good only for the rich minority. The inaccessibility of contraception commodities and services among the poor and hard- to-reach populations breeds acute inequality between the haves and the have nots.
Ukaidi

Ukaidi

A CONSERVATIVE SCENARIO

The Ukaidi (stubborn) scenario is charac- terized by the dominance of a conservative influence on the government agenda, leading to a rapid population increase, poor quality of life across the general populace, and the manifestation of the adverse effects of climate change on a fragile economy.
Utegemeo

Utegemeo

AN EXTERNAL-RELIANCE SCENARIO

The Utegemeo (reliance) scenario is characterized by a government that is committed to achieving global milestones but owing to high debt is heavily reliant on donors to fund its initiatives geared at meeting the FP 2020 development marker. This results in a reversal of gains made on contraception when donor financing is diverted to alleviating the impact of unforeseen disasters.
Uwakilishi

Uwakilishi

A PEOPLE-CENTRIC SCENARIO

This Uwakilishi (representative of the will of the people) scenario is characterized by a system that focuses its contraception service provision away from the macro-lev- el demographic objectives to meeting people’s specific contraception needs, with all actors responding genuinely and collaboratively. This sees citizens generally take charge of their own lives, including their contraception needs, and improving their socio-economic status.
